My brakes were shitty AF on my MKT too, I also could stand on the pedal with both feet and not activate the ABS, even after I did the powerstop pads/rotors. It looks like you may have the PP brakes, if I recall my front rotors were only around 12", and the PP brakes were closer to 14".

Also I don't understand you guys trying to engage ABS.... if you're standing on the brakes and the tires aren't skidding then you're fine... ABS is for when the wheels are locking up uncontrollably....

Because you should be able to lock up the tires on dry pavement.... I can do this with the other 5 cars in my collection, including my 2004 252k mile Camry :ROFLMAO:

Hmmm, maybe all SHO's had upgraded brakes over the exploder, MKZ, MKT, Flex, etc., but I recall Kensington Kensington and I bitching about the brakes on his Flex and my MKT back in 2016 and how the SHO PP brakes were a bolt on upgrade for us, so I assumed the regular SHO would have the same brakes we did. :unsure: Shit, your front rotors are as big as my Brembo rotors.

Yeah, the front brakes on his SHO are the same that I upgraded to (was only about $500 to upgrade the fronts, all in, and that was only a little over $200 more than just new rotors and pads....the calipers are dirt cheap). They're sizeable rotors, but they're still 2 piston floating calipers...where the SHO probably gets the most benefit is from the updated master cylinder.

2013 and after have the same rotors with the PP or not. The performance package isn't that big of a deal - unless you want to make you car sound super special. You'll see guys posting about which tail light bulbs they need for their "SHO with PP".

An optional Performance Package offers better brake pads, recalibrated steering, a "Sport Mode" for the stability control, additional cooling capacity, engine oil cooler, transmission cooler, PTU cooler, a shorter 3.16 to 1 final drive ratio, summer tires, spare tire delete, mobility kit (tire inflator with sealant), an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, and will not offer adaptive cruise control.

The extra cooling might be useful if you road race your car, otherwise, meh.

So there is where I'm lost. I do not have adaptive cruise

I think one of your pictures of the suspension showed the spings with a tag on them that said "PP".

I don't know these cars of the option codes and how they get optioned. Maybe the PP was available besides the code option you keep referring to?

But, um, ABS is designed to NOT let you lock them up.....
If you don’t get the ABS pulse in the brakes, there’s braking potential left on the table. The Flex couldn’t get the ABS going in the rain before I upgraded.

Or maybe when they gave all the cars the bigger brakes they gave them the other PP suspension parts as well?
. Good eye /memory but it says SHO/PP on the tags.

I just really don't believe this...... The abs does not apply more pressure, it just applys it 100x faster than you can.... Pulsating abs will not slow a car more than you standing on the brakes and NOT sliding.

Now if your tires are sliding then yes abs helps stop...

I mean I get it that the brakes were not strong enough to Skid the tire what you don't want to do that's a whole purpose of ABS is anti-lock once you're skidding you're actually accelerating
